Conoco Air

Mon Oct 08, 2007 4:11 pm

So I'm due to take a ride way up North in Alaska (first time) on a Conoco flight later this week and I don't know where to report at ANC. I was supposed to get that information from my travel dept which was supposed to get it from Conoco Air (at least that's what I call it) and for some reason no one can quite explain clearly, it's not coming and I don't feel like landing in ANC and wandering around until I accidentally find it, or freeze to death trying to.

(And I somehow don't think it's as simple as the solution preferred by my travel dept: just fly out there and look for the check-in counter in the departure hall - what if they're not in the departure hall)

Conoco Air? You mean Conoco Phillips Oil/Gas Company? If so they do run employee shuttles in a corporate E135 from Houston to a couple of places in Oklahoma 2 times a day but not sure if that is who you are asking about or not?

Yes, that Conoco, but the flight in question is one of many the company operates from ANC to places further North to ferry employees and goods (and occasional visitors) to/from their Artic fields. I believe the (single) plane is a 737.

I've taken those flights hundreds of times.

Go to Terminal B at ANC.

RIght next to where the United is (was    ) located.

You'll see the counter for "Shared Services Aviation". It's called Shared Services because the planes are owned/operated by both Conoco/Phillips and British Petroleum.

There are three 737-200s. All are pretty ragged . . . . but airworthy. 2 Came from Braathens and one from US Airways.




Want more info, PM me.

Of course it is like that. It's Anchorage you are talking about.

If you're lucky, you will get put on one of the AS extras that AS operates on a temporary basis for Shared Services.

That doesn't always work.

Happened to me one day. Two of the three BP Birds were down . . . so they contracted an AS bird . . . one of the 732QC they had.

Bought 111 of us tickets. We had to go to A Concourse to board. We all had SSSSS on our tix because they were just purchased that day. Naturally, the TSA got their asses handed to them at A Concourse. Well, after an hour and half, AS comes out and say, oooops - our 732QC is broken. So, we're bringing over another plane, only, it's going to be at B Concourse!

Ha Ha Ha . . . we all tramped out of A and then had to clear Security again at B. And the TSA got their asses handed to them again that morning.

Quite funny.

After 5 hours we finally left.

That was about 4 years ago. The 732QCs are gone now. But BP still has their birds . . . oldest one built in 1984 IIRC.

I love CO, I'd prefer CO, but they don't fly to CID and flying to ORD with them from ANC they make me go to IAH first - does that make any sense???

Thanks for the help, guys, much appreciated. It does seem much easier than I anticipated.
